AT cells are not radiosensitive for simple chromosomal exchanges at low dose.


Cells deficient in ATM (product of the gene that is mutated in ataxia telangiectasia patients) or NBS (product of the gene mutated in the Nijmegen breakage syndrome) show increased yields of both simple and complex chromosomal aberrations after high doses (>0.5Gy) of ionizing radiation (X-rays or γ-rays), however less is known on how these cells respond at… (More)
